March 16

Another rainy day here in California, gray and dreary.  So it's another good day for a colorful closeup.  This is also a California Poppy.  I'm still playing around with my +10 macro filter, but in the last two photos I've used it on my prime lens, so I've got the aperture at f/1.8.  It's an extreme look, I admit.  I really wanted to show how the bud looks like at traffic cone, but I ended up having to leave the top of the bud off because it falls out of focus so fast.  Also, I didn't know this until searching around online this week, but the California Poppy is the state flower here!
